Gareth Bale’s agent last criticized Real Madrid fans for their behavior. Now there was the return coach of the Blancos supporters.
Real Madrid fans wrote an open letter to defend themselves against allegations made by Gareth Bale’s agent Jonathan Barnett, who described the supporter’s behavior towards his player as “gross”. In this regard, the royal supporters wanted to express their “rejection and condemnation”.
“It is not the first time the agent has been heavily criticizing Real Madrid as an institution or Los Blancos’ fans. The penultimate time he demonstrated a lack of courtesy was last year when he spoke to Zinedine Zidane, the one at the time First-team coach, attacked: ‘Zidane is a shame. He shows no respect for a player who has done so much for Real Madrid,’ “the letter said.
The agent has made it clear more than once that, in his opinion, “all Real Madrid fans should roll out the red carpet for the player he represents,” the supporters write. In the past few years, Bale had “triggered disillusionment and reluctance” on several occasions among Blancos fans.
“He hasn’t played more than 193 minutes for the club this season due to a number of absenteeism injuries and when it comes to playing for his national team he gets surprisingly fit only to relapse after his international appearances “the letter goes on to say.
Real Madrid: Bale agent calls fans ‘disgusting’
The fans regretted this fact and did not understand what behavior Barnett was referring to, “as the fans have no opportunity to give their opinion to the Cardiff-born striker”.
Barnett had sharply criticized the Real fans a few days ago during the first meeting of the European players’ agents in the Ciudad del Futbol. “It’s irrelevant, I don’t care what they think. I don’t care what the Real Madrid fans think. Why should I care? I think they were gross to Gareth Bale. They misbehaved”, said Barnett.
Bale, who returned to Madrid from his one-year loan with ex-club Tottenham in the summer, only made three appearances for Los Blancos this season. He has been out due to an injury since mid-September. Before that, the Welshman was repeatedly the focus of fan criticism. Among other things, he was said to be a foreign body in the Real booth because he didn’t speak Spanish. In addition, Bale’s predilection for golf was viewed critically.
This culminated in a defiant reaction from the offensive player when he posed with a banner reading “Wales. Golf. Madrid. In that order” after a game with the Welsh national team.
